The East Bay Express, a free weekly newspaper, is looking for help with the following responsibilities related to its distribution department:
• Cleaning metal news boxes inside and out, removing trash and graffiti
• Repairing damaged news boxes, replacing parts and/or repainting them as needed
• Auditing routes to ensure drivers are delivering papers accurately and racks are in good repair
• Assisting in the warehouse on distribution day, Wednesday, helping drivers load their vehicles
• Delivering routes on Wednesday if a driver fails to do so
• Cleaning and organizing the warehouse on a regular basis
• Other odd jobs as needed
You do need a reliable vehicle for this job - no exceptions. However, we have access to a van for larger capacity jobs.
Schedule is somewhat flexible with the exception of Wednesdays. Please indicate your availability when interviewing with the Distribution Director.
This job is 16-20 hours per week and pays $20/hour plus reimbursement for personal vehicle mileage.
No experience required - you will be training on all duties. You must be able to comfortably lift 50 pounds and be willing to work around graffiti-removal chemicals and spray paint (while wearing masks). All equipment and supplies needed to do the work are provided.
